I am interested in the lives of 'things,’ especially assemblages and mechanisms, and I explore how objects usually considered inert can influence (and have influenced) the actions of the living. I believe that it is vital to enrich our connection to nonhuman life if we want to understand the workings of the universe. I work to build kinship with metal, soil, rock, glass, etc. and elevate the agency of materials to make them more visible to human eyes. It is a process of material husbandry.

I was born and raised in New York City, studied music, philosophy and architecture, and have crossed Turtle Island by car, train, or bicycle at least 8 times. I am a member of the music group 7 Count, and currently live and work.
